Default hurt my knees

I went snowboarding for the 2nd time on Saturday and I've got the hang of it a little better now to where I'm not falling quite as much. I wore kneepads this time because I banged my knees last time from falling forward. Pretty much practiced on my heel edge the whole time, and next time I'll work on my toe edge. When I stand up from sitting or lying down I flip myself on my front side and push up because I cant just grab my board and stand straight up. Most of the time when I caught an edge I fell flat forward or backward but once or twice I got a little twisted up.

I think I might have hurt something on the back outside (and maybe inside too) of my knees. I can feel pain when I bend them. I'm icing them now. Is this a common injury for a beginner? I'm hoping the pain will subside in a few days. Any idea what exactly I might have injured?
